What does it take to be a webmaster?
Being a webmaster isn't the easiest job out there. It might seem
to be a dream job for people that have a normal nine to five job,
but they could not be more wrong. They might think you have it easy
if they see you staying home a lot while they have to get up every
morning to see their boss. But for you as a webmaster it really
never ends, the job is always on your mind!
You continually have make sure your website(s) are doing what they
are supposed to do and are generating you an income instead of losing
you a lot of money.
There are so many things to think about in the business of being
a webmaster when you start out, that sometimes it isn't even funny
A few examples are:
* Find good hosting for your sites
* Doing Research into "what is a good market for me to build
a site for"
* You will have to create the Web site(s) or have it created.
* Making sure you know more about "Search Engine Optimization"
* Find affiliates and other programs that might generate revenue
from your site(s)
* Try to find link partners to increase your popularity and promote
your Web site(s)
* Setup Pay Per Click campaigns and do loads of re-search on advertisement
* Read through loads of scams that want to sell you things you don't
* Try to get as much exclusive fresh content as possible
And this is only the tip of the iceberg, every day you will run
into new ideas or things to explore. Its not a job for people that
are easily frightened by working really hard and also working those
long hours alone behind their screen.
If you won't work that hard and don't commit loads of time to
developing yourself and staying up to date in this business, you
won't last and your site(s) wont make it either.
On the other hand, if you do hang in there, and you keep growing
and growing, then its almost impossible not to succeed in your mission.
The rewards are extremely high if you make it because most successful
webmasters make a lot of money.
There are lots of things to worry/think about but in the end it
will all be worth it and you will be running with the best.
